Ariana Grande was shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz for the August 2019 issue of Vogue US magazine and the photos are sensational. Gracing the cover as well as a full story insert, Ariana opened up about the incredible music career she is enjoying as well as the many painful heartaches she’s experienced. She referred to herself as being both the luckiest and unluckiest girl in the world. There is no question that Ariana has been through one tragedy after another and many of her fans continue to express their worry for the 26-year-old Grammy winner.
Tonne Goodman styled Ariana that saw her posing on the beach wearing a large, oversized, Eric Javits black hat and lacy, black, Christian Dior sundress with her dog Toulouse Lautrec Grande on her lap. Other shots saw the backside of Ariana and Toulouse as they headed to the shoreline.
Writer Robert J. Haskell shared the following quote from Ariana Grande from her Vogue interview.
“I’m a person who’s been through a lot and doesn’t know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world. I see myself onstage as this perfectly polished, great-at-my-job entertainer, and then in situations like this I’m just this little basket-case puddle of figuring it out.” She laughs through her sniffles. “I have to be the luckiest girl in the world, and the unluckiest, for sure. I’m walking this fine line between healing myself and not letting the things that I’ve gone through be picked at before I’m ready, and also celebrating the beautiful things that have happened in my life and not feeling scared that they’ll be taken away from me because trauma tells me that they will be, you know what I mean?”
